Hi Friends! Last night I had a play with my Watercolor Pencils. Sometimes I feel like they get a bit neglected and need some love – and love them I do! I wanted to colour on cardstock that wasn’t white so I pulled out a sheet of our Cinnamon Cider for the background. I used the flowers from the “Daisy Lane” set and started colouring in shades of blues and mauves.
I really like how the white watercolor pencil highlights the images. Here’s the tutorial for you:
Cider: 8 ½” x 5 ½”” and 5” x 3 ¾”
White: 4” x 5 ¼” and ½” x 2 ¾”
8 ½” x 5 ½” Cinnamon Cider in half to create card base. Stamp
fern image randomly around the edges of card using Cinnamon Cider
sponge dauber into the Cinnamon Cider ink pad and sponge edges of
Whisper White card stock. Use Stampin’ Seal to adhere to front of
flowers and leaves onto 5” x 3 ¾” Cinnamon Cider card stock
using Black Stazon ink pad.

white watercolor pencil on flower tips and edges, blending with
Water Painter. Add dots of the white pencil in flower centres.
